Historic office property specialists open the door for affordable workspace
Finding a prestigious location for your company can be an expensive business, especially when many firms are looking to cut costs amid the current economic downturn.
But serviced offices offer an effective, affordable solution, with flexible easy-in, easy-out terms that allow businesses to trial new locations without putting up sky-high deposits or committing to lengthy leases.
Serviced office provider Inigo specialise in supplying serviced office space in period buildings across the UK. Locations include Edinburgh, central London, Leeds, Windsor, Banbury, Newbury, Basingstoke, and Bath.
Inigo opened a serviced office in a historic Georgian property in Bath last July, on Queen’s Square, and secured celebrity TV chef Jamie Oliver’s ‘Jamie’s Italian’ as their first client. The restaurant group signed up for six months of office space shortly before opening their flagship restaurant at Milsom Place, in Bath.
Inigo specialise in quality period properties, and their entire portfolio except one features listed buildings.
Sarah Ryder, operations manager for Inigo’s Bath office, says that the current downturn is encouraging businesses to change the way they utilise their office space:
“A year or two ago people might have taken on their own premises but now is not the right time to be committing to a five-year lease. I have been talking to companies that are relocating from London because they want serviced offices which are flexible.”

Although serviced offices appeal to smaller business and entrepreneurs, they are also regularly utilized by larger corporations. Global communications firm Nokia is one such example, which took office space in Inigo’s Basingstoke serviced office for two years, alongside start-ups and one-man operations.
